Reviews - What do customers think about Craft, Industry and Everyday Life: Leather and Leatherworking in Anglo-Scandinavian and Medieval York: Leather and Leatherworking in Anglo-Scandinavian & Medieval (The Small Finds)?

An excellent reference book  Mar 28, 2007
This is a really excellent compliment to the medieval London excavation books. However, It gives a much more rounded impression of the leatherworking industry, including tanning, tools, and peripheral industries revolving around leather. For people trying to understand the industry of Medieval England and indeed most of continental Europe, as well as those who want a glimpse into the daily life of a medieval European, this book gives a great deal of bits and pieces that allow one to come away with a much fuller understanding of the structure of medieval society.
